Mr. Hamm surveyed this cemetery in 2003.
BROWN SPRINGS OR DRIPPING SPRINGS OR REFUGE SPRINGS is an abandoned cemetery located on a hill in the southern part of Love County just north of the Red River. Old timers say that this cemetery was started by outlaws who liked the area because of advantage of high ground. This was a refuge from the Texas Rangers and was also in Indian Territory. They say several outlaws are buried here. It is very run down and many of the stones have disappeared. It is located in 2E, 9S, Section 31.
If you have family buried in this cemetery and would like to add their information, an obit, tombstone photo, funeral home record or memorial card to this website please send the area coordinator an email.
